Zucchini (or Other Summer Squash) Tots, by Melinda

A farm member requested the recipe for "Zucchini Tots" that Joanne posted in the shareroom as a "kid-friendly" recipe.  So here we go!
Zucchini Tots (source)
Zucchini Tots--makes 3 servings of 4 tots each. You can substitute shredded Patty Pan squash, yellow squash, or any other shredded summer squash. These are made in a mini-muffin pan.

  • 1 cup zucchini or other summer squash, grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 medium onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar (full or low fat)
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400. Spray a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray. Grate the squash into a clean (cloth) dish towel. Using the towel wrapped around the shredded squash, wring all excess fluid out of the squash. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients & season w/ salt/pepper to taste. Fill each muffin section to the top, pushing down on the filling w/ a spoon so it's nicely compacted (so they don't fall apart when you take them from the pan). Bake for 16-18 min., till tops are golden. Use a plastic knife or rubber spatula around the edges of each tot to remove them from muffin tin. Let's eat!
